"The Worcester regulations also ordered that all
tiles should be marked with the maker's sign, so
that any defects in size or quality could be traced
to the party responsible. Earlier in the same century,
in 1425, there had been many complaints at
Colchester of the lack of uniformity in the size of
the tiles made there, ^ and at last it became necessary
in 1477 to pass an Act of Parliament to regulate the
manufacture."

President George Washington, First President of the United States of America = BEER LOVER

George Washington's Recipe for Beer

George Washington was a devout beer lover. In particular, he was fond of the dark, English-style brew known as porter, and always demanded that an ample supply of it be kept on hand at Mount Vernon, his Virginia estate. However, it was not porter, but rather "small beer," for which Washington once recorded an early recipe. Preserved in the manuscript collections of the New York Public Library is a notebook kept by Washington, which includes the following hand-written recipe.
"To Make Small Beer

Take a large Siffer [Sifter] full of Bran Hops to your Taste. -- Boil these 3 hours then strain out 30 Gall[ons] into a cooler put in 3 Gall[ons] Molasses while the Beer is Scalding hot or rather draw the Melasses into the cooler & St[r]ain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm then put in a quart of Yea[s]t if the Weather is very Cold cover it over with a Blank[et] & let it Work in the Cooler 24 hours then put it into the Cask -- leave the bung open till it is almost don[e] Working -- Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed."
